how can I set a browser for Idea on macosx?



If you mean:
"How to launch a web browser on the current file?",
you can achieve that with a simple external tool:

Program: open
Parameters: $FilePath$

Okay,

I have add follow string

open /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari

When I launch the online help button on idea, safari started now, but the
url is not okay.

url:
file:///Developer/Applications/IDEA.app/Contents/Resources/Java/bin/http:/ww
w.jetbrains.com/idea/documentation

Why?

Jens,

just use open (nothing more) as Web broser path in IDE Settings/General. Mine opens default browser just fine.

Jens,

On my pristine - not hacked - and up-to-date MacOs X 10.3, I didn't have
to modify IDEA/2002 to have Safari open the online help.

Did you try the much simpler version I suggested:

>> Program: open
>> Parameters: $FilePath$

It does the job on my system.

You may need to set your default browser. Open up Safari and go to Preferences -> General and there you can set your default browser for Mac OS X.
